The Air Max 1 and 95 Also Receive an atmos Makeover
Out of the select few stores who can pride themselves on having done a Nike collaboration, Tokyo’s atmos stands out in particular. In the past, the Japanese boutique has crafted sought-after projects like the Air Max 1 “Elephant” or the Air Max “Animal Pack”.
To the sneaker community’s delight, both of these collabs have been re-released just recently. For 2018, atmos finally turns heads again with an all-new project.
Our Japanese colleagues from SHOES MASTER magazine just revealed their latest issue, with a atmos-designed Air Max 90 on the cover. At first glance, the upper seems to feature a patchwork-like pattern. But if you look closer, you can see that it is actually made up of Nike shoe boxes. This eye-catching detail is then contrasted by discreet black nubuck elements on the toe box, tongue and collar.
A white midsole and Infrared Air window references one of the most classic Air Max 90 colorways. And finally, the patent leather Swoosh with a snakeskin pattern continues the atmos tradition of animal-themed elements.
Update March 29, 2018:
Thanks to a sneak peek by @kuma_sneakers, we now get a glimpse of what appears to be a three-piece atmos x Air Max collection (pictured above). An OG-inspired blue version of the Air Max 1 swaps suede for smooth leather and also displays the shoe box print upper.
Besides that, we also see the ever-popular Air Max 95 in a new guise. Decked out with the AM95’s signature Air Max logo, the overall look seems to emulate the “Solar Red” OG colorway.
Release Details – atmos x Nike Air Max WE LOVE NIKE Pack
As of now, a release date for the atmos x Nike Air Max WE LOVE NIKE Pack wasn’t announced yet. Stay tuned for further info on all three colorways soon.
Until then, here’s where to cop the black OFF-WHITE x Nike Air VaporMax.
